SculpSure on the chin?
Thanks for your question! SculpSure is currently not approved for submental fat treatment, but stay tuned...we are working on it!In the meantime, I think Kybella is an excellent option for non-surgical treatment of chin fat.
Kybella injections are an excellent non surgical alternative that works well for chins and can also be performed in about 20 minutes.

Under Chin Treatment
Unfortunately SculpSure cannot treat under the chin. However we can treat it with our 3D Laser or Kybella.
3-D-Collagen is the structural fiber in the skin that makes skin firm and thick. It’s abundant when we are young and is the reason younger skin is firmer. But over time our skin’s content of collagen diminishes. As a result the skin has less fibers and less structural support so it thins becoming saggy and loose. Ultimately it caves in causing what we see as lines and wrinkles.
Here’s the amazing fact: 3D laser stimulates more collagen to be produced by your skin cells to replenish those crucial fibers. This is possible because those cells that produce collagen are alive, they just get sluggish as we age. 3D laser jumpstarts the manufacturing of collagen once again.
Fat Under the Chin
Currently Sculpsure is FDA approved for permanent fat reduction of the abdomen and the flanks. It can also be used off-label on other parts of the body, but due to the current size of the applicator, I would not recommend using it under the chin.
However, the company who makes the device Cynosure, Inc. is reportedly designing new applications for the device. This will be exciting.
If you are looking to non-surgically remove excess fat under the chin, Kybella is an excellent choice. We were one of the first practices selected in Richmond to use Kybella, and have been getting excellent results. It is a 5 minute in office injection procedure.
I hope this is helpful

Currently sculpsure is not FDA approved for submental fat reduction. I recommend following up with your cosmetic provider to evaluate other options that are available such as kybella.
SculpSure is not yet used for unwanted under chin fat, but Kybella and CoolMini are great.

As far as submental fullness is concerned, there are great treatments for that, including Precision Tx, laser liposuction that removes the fat and tightens the skin. Some patients have a bit too much laxity to do fat removal without risking a more wrinkled appearance.
Use Kybella to remove fat under the chin.
